strange weather

3 weeks ago on Sunday we had about 2 ft. of snow and temperatures about 32 degrees. We had a nice sledding party - perfect winter day.
2 weeks ago on Sunday we had 60 degree weather. Snow melted and I was outdoors cleaning up matted down leaves that had blown into my yard this past fall.
This past Sunday, we had 30 degree temperatures but with wind gusts up to 60 mph.  Crazy, I tell ya!!  The wind blew over the outdoor cabinet I keep my flower pots in - many of which are clay pots from my grandfather's greenhouse.  I bet they are all smashed to pieces.  I have a cement block and a cement paving stone in the bottom of this cabinet to keep it from tipping over.  Guess that didn't work!! 
 The temperature has dropped to single digits and we have more snow today so I won't be going out anytime soon to check out the damage.

  1. I hear you. Most of our snow is completely gone now with a few patches of ice left over. But the wind and the cold, yikes. (we're expecting a wind chill of -32c (-25F) tomorrow) Can only imagine what this will do to the plants that are now left bare.
